Well, I think I like Further better than the 09 tour, but I also like the last incarnations of P+Fs, and Ratdog , maybe even more . Phil and Bob must think he is the shit , and I have to say, they jam well together . The problem, is the closer you get to the old GD sound, the more Jerry's absence is noticed . Blair Jackson has an interesting interview with John at Dead Net , worth checking out .
I would have to say, I like his guitar playing/sound more than Warren, but his singing is just OK, where Warren was awesome .
I think John's playing is getting freer with the group, so we shall see ( hear ).
I hope we have not heard the end of Phil's musical partnership with John Molo, for instance .

I think Jeff Mattson would've been a better fit. He knows Jerry's licks, but does them in his own style. The singing voice is the key component. He can sing just like Jerry.

There are times wnen a friend of mine will have JGB on the box, and I will have to ask is this JGB or Garcia? It's that close on certain songs.

'95 was better than '09 The Dead

...although '09 did get progressively better as the tour wore on, but still

Even, a limping, busted up Jerry is better that anyone else, but this is no offense to Warren etc., it's just there was only one Garcia . Now there are things they have dome in the post Jerry bands, that make you think, Damn, why couldn't they have done this with Garcai "! . Some of my reservations as pertaining to the 09 Dead", has to do with, not just the "No Jerry" factor, but the , usual 2 drummers problems , and a general lack of energy . My favorite comment about one of the shows was."Man , these guys need to drink 5 Red Bulls each, before the concert ". I don't mind slow ( big 76 fan), but they sounded thick, and sluggish, sometimes .
In contrast, Phil with Molo never sound that way . I think if you compare "Futhur" with the other post big guy groupings, they come out pretty good .
And "in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king ".

I have heard as much and hope to experience it first-hand even though I said after G'boro '09 that I would never see another GD reunion group. I think Furthur will have a hard time topping '02 TOO though. That tour was magical...at least the Roanoke opener was.

I'm going to give that Roanoke show a listen since I never have before. Doesn't seem to have got a lot of attention on the Archive - no reviews, not many downloads - but that doesn't necessarily count for much.

By the way, while I'm here just how many gtrs have you actually clkted?

:-)

rob I hope you will find the magic in that Roanoke show

I will admit there were several "outside" factors that contributed to the magic for me, but Jerry was in that coliseum with "the boys" that night. And having R.Hunter do a set between TOO's sets didn't hurt.

well, "gtrs'(and other stringed instruments)I have 15 of varying ages, state of repair and collectiblity

6 acoustic(6 string, 12 string and Hawaiian)
3 electric(6 string only)
3 bass(4 string...is there any other "real" bass?)
2 ukulele(soprano)
1 banjo(5 string)

jonesing hard for my first mandolin

also assorted
penny whistles
native flutes
kazoo
keyboard
and a "toy" drum machine(my grandson left it for me to play with)

Bill - I'm sorry I failed to respond to you - got tied up in off-forum aka 'real life' stuff, but just wanted you to know that I appreciated you taking the time to tell me about your collection. All I have myself is an acoustic twelve string and an electric six (used to have an acoustic six but it left this world in the course of a domestic realignment...) Hope you're giving all your instruments a regular workout!

no worries
life has a way of bringing us back to reality when we least expect it

unfortunately not much of "the collection" gets regular exercise

lately I've been concentrating on uke

Best time I had @ a post - '95 event was 8 - 3 -04 ( as The Dead ). Heavy Pig show - H2H , Mr. C. , Alligator . Some real curveballs as well . The reviewed show has the best sound to me . A bit spotty , but better then '09 . Anytime they play TTMC I cringe .

For a real good time > PnF , 4 - 16 - 99 , H >S > F ,WYWH
and most of all PnF 4 - 17 - 99 DS > IUTY , DBetween > DS > MFT , BSong

Amen to that 4/17/99 show! Check out the end of Terrapin (with the DS blend). I personally think Phil had the best post Dead bands (many different incarnations, varying degree of success, but always interesting in its' interpretation).
